New: Gung Pow Slot Celebrates Chinese New YearPublished January 19, 2015 by Mike P
Microgaming’s Gung Pow slot is now available at leading casinos. Celebrate Chinese New Year with this dazzling new slot.
A glittering new slot game has been added to Microgaming casinos in time for the Chinese New Year in February. Gung Pow is designed with the dazzling visuals of a festival illuminated by lights, lanterns, and exploding fireworks. At a glance, the slot is obviously impressive, but what else does it have to offer?
The build of the Gung Pow slot is a familiar design in that there is a grid of five reels by three rows. A total of 15 symbols will land across the reels after each spin. Players need to assign a betting value to determine how much they will wager on each spin of the reels.
Rather than implement a clear system of paylines, Microgaming has instead elected to build Gung Pow with 243 ways of winning. For some years now, Microgaming has favoured this design technique for its higher profile slot releases. And the presence of 243 ways of winning indicates that Microgaming has high hopes for the popularity of its Gung Pow slot game. The highest possible jackpot is 30,00 coins for a max bet.
The first of the special features is the ability of the wild symbol to substitute for all other missing symbols except for the scatter symbol. Look out for the logo symbol of the game to find the wild.
Nobody will be surprised to learn that the scatter is one of the other most important symbols in the game. Three or more scatter symbols after a spin will trigger as many as 15 free spins. And the fact that these can be retriggered means that the maximum winning during free spins is 90,000 coins. There is also a gambling option for trying to increase winnings.
